Hello, I’m Elizabeth!

A little about me and my old maple home…

Our home was built between 1898 and 1909 by a surgeon who was a Navy sea caption. Our home is considered a Queen Anne Victorian that got a craftsman trendy makeover.

We purchased our home in the summer of 2021 during the wildest housing market not seen in decades. We actually never had our eye specifically on an old historic home.


Yes, God is the reason we have our beautiful old home and were able to live miles down the road from family after many years away serving in the military.

He closed a lot of doors, but we stayed faithful, knowing He would provide a home for us. Which, could have included anything from a home on wheels to a humble bi-level.

Never in our wildest dreams did we expect God to deliver our dream home!


He is so good!

I could go on and on about how the God of the Bible lavished His best on us through a situation where we called on Him in need, but I’ll stop here and talk a little about what you can expect to find here!

I’m hoping that this website can be a resource for you to find vintage home decor inspiration. Along with that, I’ll show you how to use thrifted and second-hand pieces to curate decor that makes your space one of a kind!

I love to do DIY’S, upcyles and thrifted flips and I’ll share those with you as well!

I have a YouTube channel where I film similar content as described above, go check that out here!

My instagram account is where you can follow along daily in stories and enjoy a curated feed of photos of my home. I hope to see you there!

I also have an Etsy shop where you can find vintage-inspired digital items I often use on some of my thrift flips!
